The Rise Up! Glendale Coalition is a group of concerned community leaders and members working to reduce youth alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drug use/abuse in the city of Glendale.

Why we started…  

Rise Up! Glendale began in October of 2020, when it was discovered that Glendale had no localized substance abuse prevention efforts in place.

Rise Up! Glendale works with law enforcement, healthcare, education and various other community-based organizations and volunteers to reduce the demand for drugs through several methods such as websites and social media awareness, education campaigns, drug take-back events, Naloxone and Deterra drug disposal kit distribution, community surveys, assessment of community needs and in-school resiliency and prevention education, specifically tailored to meet the needs of our community.

Our Mission

Unite Glendale in preventing substance use among youth while providing the life-skills to RISE UP to their potential.

Our Vision

Empowered youth choosing healthy, drug-free lives.
